As soon as I met the staff for this shop (at a bridal expo), I knew I wanted to buy my dress there, and was really hoping to find something I loved so I could give them my business. I went in, and found the perfect gown!
It was a comfortabl...
e, fun experience - nobody was pushy, trying to get me to make an emotional impulse buy, or trying to force me out of my budget. I had the freedom to look through the dresses, pull ones that I liked, and the owner helped me to stay in my budget and gave me tons of options to do so. I never once felt like I was just a dollar sign to her, when so many other vendors in the wedding business treat you that way.
I had so many shops try to scare me into buying something on impulse because "You're not going to have enough time! You need to order now! It'll take at least 6 months for the dress to come in!" This shop reassured me that I still had plenty of time and shared all my options with me, making sure I found something I loved. Could not be happier with their level of professionalism and just down-to-earth kindness!
I feel like I tend to be a pretty rational, rather than sentimental, bride... a dress is a dress, you wear it once. I wanted to find the perfect gown, but I also wanted to make sure my business was going to a professional place that deserves my business. I got both! That's something I loved about this shop :) Their attitudes were so different from other shops I tried - David's Bridal, Dior, Moni's, etc.
Their prices go up to $2,000, and they really work with your budget. They don't do alterations, but give you a list of recommended seamstresses and have one that works out of their shop. I believe they said their bridesmaid dresses range from $125 to $230, averaging around $180. Your maids get 10% off when you buy here!
It was a far drive from me but I'm SO glad I drove out to give it a chance. Highly highly recommend!
